Dr. Kiran Mian, a renowned skincare expert, suggests that hybrid sunscreens, which combine both physical and chemical filters, offer a unique solution for sun protection. These sunscreens combine the benefits of mineral sunscreen with the cosmetic elegance of chemical sunscreens, ensuring a comprehensive and effective protection against harmful UV rays. Mian’s approach to sunscreen formulations is a significant advancement in the field of skincare.

Dr. Mian recommends hybrid sunscreens, such as CeraVe Hydrating Sheer Sunscreen, which contains both chemical and mineral UV filters. The mineral sunscreen, often zinc oxide or titanium dioxide, helps reflect harmful rays before they penetrate the skin. The chemical sunscreen, like oxybenzone, avobenzone, octisalate, octocrylene, homosalate, and octinoxate, absorbs harmful UV rays. CeraVe Hydrating Sheer Sunscreen, with essential ceramides and SPF 30, supports hydrated, healthy-looking skin. These hybrid sunscreens not only protect against UV damage but also promote hydrated skin.

Dr. Mian has praised CeraVe Hydrating Sheer Sunscreen as her “go-to sunscreen for summer 2023,” highlighting its unique hybrid sunscreen formula for both face and body. This multi-benefit sunscreen offers broad-spectrum sun protection and is makeup-friendly, making it suitable for all skin types. Its ultra-lightweight, sheer formula makes it an ideal addition to any skincare routine.

It offers broad-spectrum sun protection

Hybrid sunscreen, formulated to provide broad-spectrum SPF 30 protection against both UVA and UVB rays, is recommended by the American Academy of Dermatology for effective sun protection.

It’s suitable for all skin types

Sunscreen is essential for all skin types, including sensitive skin and dry skin. Our fast-absorbing hybrid sunscreen is designed to be gentler on these types, making it suitable for those with acne-prone or sensitive skin.

It features convenient, leak-proof packaging

Sunscreen should be applied daily, 365 days per year, and reapplied at least every two hours during the day. Mian recommends using a hybrid formula with a leak-proof dispenser, as it works well on both the face and body. This convenient packaging makes it easy to take with you on-the-go, ensuring you don’t deal with product leakage.

It’ is absorbed quickly and dries to a sheer finish.

Dr. Mian recommends a hybrid sunscreen with a thin formulation that provides even coverage and dries sheer, making it easy to spread and absorb without leaving a white cast or greasy feel.

It’s water-resistant for up to 80 minutes

The American Academy of Dermatology recommends using water-resistant sunscreen, especially when swimming or sweating. CeraVe’s hybrid sunscreen is an excellent option, providing up to 80 minutes of water resistance, but requires reapplication after 80 minutes of use.

It’s non-greasy and feels comfortable on skin

Dr. Mian praises CeraVe Hydrating Sheer Sunscreen for its cosmetic elegance and sun protection benefits. The thin formula ensures easy spreadability and breathability, while also being non-greasy and non-comedogenic, making it a comfortable and effective option for skin care.

Don’t forget about other sun protection measures
